these graphics. what i thought i would do is simply pull some basic terminology out for us, give us some basic language. and i thought i would do it since we are so well educated now, it's about time to kick us all out into the real world and use our six dimensions of religion. i thought i would take our six dimensions of religion, put it in that framework and just, we are not pretending as always that we are learning everything about east asian religion, but what we are trying to do is draw out some key answers to profound life questions here. anyway, looking at the graphics. first off, difficulty number one, if we haven't already listened to some other difficulties for westerners looking at this, we are so used to labeling. but when we think about the picture of chinese religion, it's a combination of confucianism, taoism, and buddhism in the mix, perhaps some christianity, some folk religion. we'd move to japan and we'll see the same set but also with shinto elements in there so it's a full world view, a full lifestyle, we have to keep that in mind even though we are dividing things up. so
affects us all, and we've been linking the doctrinal and the ethical and the social dimension together as we've been moving through this, and we're going to do some more formal notes on the ethical dimension. but how people behave certainly does affect us all. and you know, we're supposed to not date the teleclass, but i don't know, when really tragic events occur, i don't think it necessarily dates them to bring it up. and of course, as we are involved in this class, you know, we've just had a hugely tragic worldwide event in which american embassies were attacked and many, many people died. now we have to hold off here because this just occurred and we don't know if there is religious implications behind this, though, you know, most people suspect that we're once again looking at the tension between the secular west that we'll look at certainly in our next class, and the quest for the islamic world to hold off against that and to take just about any measure in that. so it's an extraordinary power- we have to be very careful here because we don't know yet who is responsible for this a
of water dowsing-- finding underground water using forked sticks-- has been going on for centuries. typically, the dowser grasps the fork of the stick and points the other end skyward. then, as he's walking along and happens to pass over a supply of underground water, the end of the stick, or divining rod, supposedly twists downward, showing where to dig the well. in reality, almost anywhere you popoint the stick, you'd eventually find water. although its depth varies considerably from place to place, water is present beneath the earth's surface almost everywhere, even under the driest deserts. most people tend to take groundwater for granted, but it's a tremendously valuable resource upon which most of us depend. over 1/2 of the u.s. population relies on it for its drinking-water supply. even more groundwater's used for irrigating agriculture, and its industrial use is growing every day. groundwater is valuable because it's plentiful and clean. there's about 50 times more water underground than in all the lakes and rivers on the earth's surface combined. in many areas, especially

. i think all of us have been traumatized by something and then we have this need, this obsession to tell stories and to rework the world within our own guidelines. (upbeat music playing) certain independent filmmakers are independent because they can't make movies they want to make within the studio system. (upbeat music playing) aaahh! if the movies work, and they make a profit, then the studios are going to be saying, "hey, why don't you make a movie for us?" "we want that money that you made for those guys." (narrator) in mainstream hollywood, a picture averages $42 million in production and marketing. an independent film can cost a fraction of that amount. in order to survive, major studios have to produce films that appeal to a mass audience. but independent filmmakers with lower budgets can take risks that hollywood won't, producing films that are original. how independent films are made varies, but filmmakers on the edge of hollywood all have one overriding desire: make films on their own terms. it is very, very difficult for something new to come from within hollywood. it
was magnificent and saved us mucho dollars- or shekels, i should say- over there, and may have saved our lives in a couple of instances by knowing where to go. when we were moved through- he knew through networking within his own community where the hot spots are. for instance, one week it was possible to go to bethlehem, which is in palestinian areas, but certain things were happening and he would know a couple days later, "not safe; don't go there." just some really- we got so over into the west bank that we could actually see jordan, and yet we were able to move through communities in the palestinian territories with all the machine guns and those things you've seen- you know, the towers and the places where the palestinians are stopping- we managed to move through those kinds of tense situations with minimum hassle. so i'm very glad to be back and alive. but the key thing is what we were able to accomplish. with our incredible contacts, we went directly to nazareth. and actually, networking is an amazing thing, because the local episcopal priest in mccomb, of all places, mccomb, illinois,

we call firn. it's an old swiss term that's still used today. so eventually the firn itself gets more compact, more recrystallized, and it becomes glacier ice. subject to extreme, instantaneous stress, ice shatters like glass. but if stress such as gravity is applied gradually over a long period of time, the ice bends. this process, called plastic deformation, explains how glaciers move. generally, ice must accumulate to a thickness of approximately 20 meters before movement starts. pulled by gravity, ice in a glacier typically shifts down slope a few millimeters per day. to study glacial flow, louis agassiz and his students built a hut on the ice itself. they observed that the center of the glacier moved most quickly, while friction slowed down movement along its sides. a similar phenomenon is observed in rivers and streams. scientists like agassiz also wanted to understand how glaciers flow internally. but it wasn't until early in the post-world war ii era that glaciologists were able to drill a hole through a swiss glacier. and this was a hole several hundred meters deep, maybe a c

things you never knew existed. it's a rare film for really allowing us to see the pressures and the constraints and the demands on masculinity on men for an ideal of masculinity. i think in lang's kind of worldview, what he sees is that that little guy is going to lose, you know, that the cynics of the world are going to be able to prey on people who are believers. "scarlet street" could be considered film noir for a number of reasons. first of all, you have a kind of illusion of bourgeois or petty bourgeois order which the bank clerk represents, and that is disrupted. he's cast out from his normal existence into a dangerous, glamorous street world. that sequence when chris cross first sees kitty is close to being the essence of noir. it stopped raining. yeah, a half-hour ago. oh, which way is it to the east side subway?
